Gloria Rogers’ Yarn - Two Worlds

Our Way

Added by Desert Pea Media

Description Part of the 'Break It Down: Community Conversations Around Mental Health' project 2017/2018. (DPM/PHN WNSW)

Life as a fair-skinned Aboriginal woman has not been easy for Aunty Gloria Rogers. Being caught between two worlds brings uncertainty, and inevitable anxiety, but Aunty Gloria has spent her life learning how to honour both. At the crux of everything is indyamarra (respect), and it is through that knowledge that Gloria has built a life bringing the two worlds together. The ultimate lesson here is staying true to yourself, no matter what walk of life you are from. When we learn more about the parts that make us unique, and how to express those, our lives can become far more fulfilling.
